I Know You Are Working Hard But Are You Thinking?

I know you are working VERY hard but when was the last time you allowed yourself the time to do the powerful work of THINKING??!! 
Giving yourself time to think is the gift that keeps on giving. It allows you to reflect, rejoice, renew, and recalibrate…so you can recharge!!  
Every quarter, we need to set aside at least one day to THINK. Yes, just THINK
And let me clarify thinking…it’s not replaying old memories. This is what most people qualify as thinking. Real THINKING is when we open our minds to new thoughts and ideas. When we stretch our mindset and open up to new possibilities.  
To give yourself this precious gift of “thinking time”, it’s gonna require a higher level of trust from you in YOU!!  Many of us are too afraid to set aside time to THINK because we feel we are losing out or missing out if we are not doing, doing, doing. And for us high achievers, many of us equate quiet time to think as being lazy. All of this is so far from the truth.  
We are so empowered when we spend intentional time allowing our thoughts to expand beyond our day to day activities and launch into the unknown brilliance of our own thoughts.  
So… right now…
Open up your calendar and set your DAY to THINK!!!  No distractions.  No excuses. No limitations.  
I have my dates set. What days are you putting on your calendar?  In the comments below, share with me the day you are setting this quarter.
